Not everyone was celebrating. Throughout the arab and islamic world there was mourning, condemnation and calls for revenge. And there are of course denials that Bin Laden had anything to do with 9/11, even though he claimed responsibility for the Twin Towers massacre he was somehow not responsible. Why do islamists even try to deny a massacre of which they rejoiced?
Well then if you are an extreme muslim it's possible to use the bombing as yet another example of how the west 'tries' to besmirch and attack islam. If you're paranoid and eaten up with hatred of jews and western civilisation you'll believe anything.
"The group's Jakarta branch chairman, Habib Salim Alatas, said there was no proof that bin Laden was the mastermind of the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington that killed around 3,000 people.The palestinians, that darling of the west which celebrated Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait, who danced in the streets and distributed sweets to celebrate the 9/11 massacre of innocent americans, mourned the killing of Bin Laden.
"This is a question that must be answered by countries such as Australia, Britain, the United States and the Jews," he told AFP, adding that bin Laden was a "sincere fighter who defended Islam".
Hamas prime minister Haniyeh of Gaza condemned the killing of Bin Laden. Well that's not really much of a surprise as he is after all the leader of a terrorist entity that glorifies jihad and 'martydom'.
"The Palestinian Islamist group Hamas has praised Osama bin Laden as an "Arab holy warrior" and condemned his killing by American forces in Pakistan."
The Imam of the Al-Aqsa Mosque was burning with hatred for the USA and called for president Obama's assassination:
"The western dogs are rejoicing after killing one of our Islamic lions. From Al-Aqsa Mosque, where the future caliphate will originate with the help of God, we say to them – the dogs will not rejoice too much for killing the lions. The dogs will remain dogs and the lion, even if he is dead, will remain a lion."
The imam then verbally attacked US President Barack Obama saying: "You personally instructed to kill Muslims. You should know that soon you'll hang together with Bush Junior."
"We are a nation of billions, a good nation. We'll teach you about politics and military ways very soon, with god's help," he vowed."
These are the people that Israel is supposed to sit down and make peace with, to give them the strategic hills just 10 kms from Tel-Aviv. Israel should understand the depth of the hatred of these fanatics for the west, for jews, christians and Israel and keep building its towns and villages in Judea and Samaria.
Land is strength, and that's why the fake 'palestinian' nationalists wish to take land away from Israel.
Israel gave the Sinai away to Egypt for peace and now Egypt is hotting up the border allowing terrorists to infiltrate Israel whilst egyptian troops look the other way.
Not only the Moslem Brotherhood said it would tear up the peace treaty with Israel. A number of secular parties also called for this whilst demonstrating against Israel. No wonder they lost the elections so badly. The only electioneering they could organise were demonstrations in Tahrir square and at the israeli embassy (It resulted in a mob attack and israeli diplomatic staff leaving just in time to escape being lynched).
Rather than prosecute this imam for calling for Obama's assassination Israel has again buckled and closed the case against him. Just as Israel will not act against the fascist and jew hating Islamic Northern League headed by anti-semite Raed Saleh, it will not enforce the law in east Jerusalem for fear of international repercussions. Even when israelis have been attacked the police would not intervene for fear of sparking further riots.
What is more interesting is that Israel when it retook Jerusalem in 1967 after being attacked by Jordan, it allowed the Waqf to keep control of the Temple Mount. The Waqf is controlled by Jordan. The imam is paid by Jordan. The most 'moderate' state in the middle east pays for a rabid US hating imam to be in charge of one of the most important mosques in the world.
But there again, Jordan has just allowed Hamas to establish its headquarters in Amman. Jordan’s prime minister Awn Khasawneh has close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Obama might not even understand that for all his outreach to the muslim world he's hated as much as any other american president in that region. Once Obama is removed, hopefully by democratic rather than the imam's favourite means, the USA is going to have a lot of work on its hands to reestablish its credibility in the middle east.
